'Let's go in and see if we can buy it.'
Candy has sixpence to buy sweets with.
'I'm afraid you'd have to save up a lot of those
before you could buy it,'
says the owner of the shop.
Candy saves all her money.
She never goes to the sweet shop.
But oh dear, one day the extra special rocking horse
She is very sad.
She writes to Santa Claus.
She spends all her saved up pennies and sixpences
on presents for her father,
(a pot of daffodils)
and Peppermint the dog
(a piece of ribbon to tie on his collar).
On Christmas Eve, Candy wrapped up her presents
and put them under the Christmas tree.
What a wonderful Christmas everyone had!

based on a children's book published in 1965
and the song
Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree.
